remarks on foreign policy, particularly the challenges facing the new egyptian government in the foreign policy and region security realm, but i can set the concept of talking a little bit about domestic policy. and here, let me just start off by what seems to be a paradoxical situation, when assessing egypt's domestic landscape. because i'm the one hand, on the level of politics we have truly momentous change in egypt. however, on the level of policy, i would argue that we have much more continuity than change. on the level of politics, the election of president mohamed morsi was truly a landmark event in egypt's political history. he was the first civilian elected to the office of the presidency in egypt. he is also the first islamist to be elected as head of state in any arab country in free and fair elections. and that the islamist movement in question of course is the most impressive by far, the largest and most well-established islamist movement in the world of political islam. so truly momentous change on the level of politics. however, i would argue on the level of policy, we hav

, columnist of the post. in addition to that, today, foreign policy magazine, which is a well regarded magazine in washington, d.c., long history, they had two people. harold duron barbuh and jerone moulasasa. i'm sorry if i'm not pronouncing that right. they had gone to dubai. dubai based television to the compound to do reporting and they found in the compound stuff that our own f.b.i. didn't find. so at this point, i think that it was jake tapper of abc news wrote there is a drip, drip, drip about this. the administration set themselves up for this by blaming video in the first place. i actually am going to complain. i don't think romney brought this up enough. if he had, other reporters would have paid attention earlier. >> bob: it was smart. they found copy of "new yorker" magazine. >> dana: no, they found a letter from him. >> bob: they did? >> kimberly: you should be concerned. >> dana: dated september 11. >> bob: on the other hand i would like to see how many other consulates around the country and embassy asked for backup help. six weeks prior to the event, which nobody expect
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
any basis and fact in terms of foreign policy. >> what do you make of governor romney today picking up on a line that he basically debuted, if you will, right before the storm and the attention went to that crisis, that he is the candidate of change in this race? >> well, i think that that is a very shallow argument, but the last three days, you're going to see enormous amount of messaging. president obama is the candidate of change. he was four years ago. he is now, changing the policies of the past. he's done that in foreign policy. he's doing this with the economy, with his agenda of creating jobs and more teachers and engineering jobs and the middle class out. he's the candidate of change. governor romney is not. but, look, this is a very close race. this is going to go down to the wire. but i feel confident. i see the battleground states moving our way. but i think it's going to be a long night, tamron, a long night on tuesday. >> governor, it's a great pleasure having you on. i know we will see you that night on some of our coverage, i'm sure. thank you, sir. >>> and we are follo
the effect of the deadly attack in benghazi because foreign policy before that attack was a clear advantage for the president, but the controversy and contradictory statements coming from the administration has hurt president obama that poll reflects it. jon: there are questions too about how this president is handling the economy. right now only 45% say they approve. 52% disapprove. in october of 2010 i guess, the numbers were slightly lower for the president. i'm sorry, in terms of the disapproval number. 61%. so it is getting better, but still he is not looking too good when it comes to his handling of the economy. >> no and that is the number one issue of this election. so the fact that it is so close and those numbers are so bad for the president, actually a good sign for the president because those numbers are not good. in 2009, president obama mocked republicans. said they're always trying to make this mess and give me the economy and then he took ownership. said, give it to me. i will own the economy. that is the big issue of this election and that is why republicans say at the last
the selected site for other major romney messages. he chose emi for his foreign policy address. >> i know the president hope for a safer and prosperous middle east. i share this hope but hope is not a strategy. >> as he did in the debates romney asserts -- inserts the economy into every visit. talking to us after the american legion visit. >> we did not cut our military budget. it will kill 137 jobs in virginia. unacceptable. >> after trailing obama, polls in virginia show the race is a dead heat. >> we need to take back america. it is up to you guys in virginia. >> it has been that way ever since campaign advisor say his first debate performance -- when the candidate came back he showed new confidence. the volunteers were energized and they saw of the bomb in the polls. it remains neck-and-neck in the state. a state mitt romney very much wants to change from blue for barack obama back to read with the win for the republicans. it will be three other names under the virginia ballot. he served in virginia state senate as a member of congress between 1997 and 2009. carey johnson was the repu
and fox business for continuing to talk about benghazi. >> the distinguished foreign policy journalist and columnist with "the washington post", david ignatius, finally, finally acknowledging that fox is asking the right questions and questions this administration refused to answer. he is the first in the liberal mainstream media, and the most arguably, the most important voice on foreign policy amongst the, the liberal columnists, to say, now we need answers. the response in the national media, "the washington post", "the new york times", "the los angeles times", the broadcast networks, has been deafening in its abject disregard of everything that ignatius said and all that we reported. this is a moment in which i think the american people feel deeply he detrade and deceived. melissa: we'll leave it there. lou dobbs, thank you so much. lori: see lou with melissa and me every day at this time. we look forward to our chat. 7:00 and 10:00 p.m. eastern, "lou dobbs tonight.". tonight middle east analyst, walid phares and judith miller. >> thanks, good to be with you. melissa: it is quarter

foreign policy con edis edison. we said coned is in hopes to restore power by the majority of the weekend. it's not this weekend -- it is the weekend after! the weekend of the 10th and 19119 11th. it may be the majority of those 650,000 people do not have power through next week. and for some, they even say it will be the week after. i'm afraid real serious problems for the power supply and for a lot of new yorkers, that means no water and that also means no sanitation. let's make that perfectly clear because in new york you have to pump the water into your building and to the top of it in order to get the water to flow through. tyler, back to you. >> the yoordeals continue. >>> conedison and the utilities sector in fact today negative as they all struggle to bring back power. to clarify what simon said, they are extending the timelines for full restoration but they still maintain that they should be able to bring lower manhattan back by this saturday. so they are maintaining this weekend for lower manhattan, but in the suburbs and outside of manhattan, they are extending it to the follow
that the president is doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it and you actually maybe even step aside and i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which is to lay low. a grace period, i guess, and the president is going to be back on the campaign trail. mitt romney didn't even mention the name yesterday. perhaps he learned from his mistake, if you believe that they were a mistake, from the attack in benghazi. >> clearly i think the campaign thought he jumped in far too quickly in benghazi and that was a move they regretted. he was out yesterday in florida campaigning. there were attacks against barack obama's leadership style and reference to fema and the role of government in federal emergencies. but i think this quantifies -- i think it changes the race in the sense that it changes the tone of the race in the last few days and i think the president has managed --
, in the final week of this campaign, not only been in a day abandoning their position on foreign policy, trying to wiggle out of their position on women. now they are running away from the bet -- very fundamental ten et upon which this new republican tea party is based. what do they say? i mean this sincerely. it is based on two things -- one, the tax structure continuing to give massive tax cuts to the very wealthy. the five dar trillion tax plan that governor romney ran on a right here in the primaries in florida, with all those republicans, that $5 trillion plan, $1.6 trillion of which goes to making a minimum of $1 million. all this sudden it is gone. as my fourth granddaughter with said, did caspar the friendly ghost steal it? where did it go? it was a center element of the organizing principle, but because outside groups pointed out that the plan would raise middle-class taxes by $2,000 a year, all of a sudden it has vanished. all of a sudden, romney says, do not worry, it will not cost anything. we will eliminate the polls for the wealthy. ladies and gentlemen, for people making over $1
a fair chance to win in 2008 and then he could decide to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has been buried over the past four years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came in his trillion dollars stimulus would get unemployment well under where it is now. he said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not something done at the state level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he said it was going to be less -- that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one- term proposition. i agree with him, and that is why
security and foreign affairs. mitt romney, you saw him in the debate on the topic of foreign policy. most of his ideas he was a neat, too, with respect to the president. -- me, too. host: lets' hear from our republican voters in new hampshire. -- let's. caller: it is amazing that are all on the puck for president obama. you want watch a balanced news station, go to fox news. that is the truth, it really is. president george bush would have been crucified if this went down in libya. for american soldiers, people that were killed. th were just sitting around. same situation. mitt romney does have a plan. he is a businessman. obama has never been run a lemonade stand let's be honest. guest: with respect to benghazi the president is insisting on getting to the bottom. he has also said we will find those responsible and nature -- make sure they are held responsible. that is what we expect from are responsible president. with respect to the other comments, obviously with respect to fox news, i do not watch fox news, so i cannot really comment on fox other than to say it might be a good idea if
is on top of it. >> from a foreign policy perspective it might serve the nation better if we were to take action against you if you were to attack other countries. with reason or not, this is not something for nurse will take lately. one of the things we underestimate his reaction of the government. we don't want to assume the venezuelans know what's going on in this or perhaps anything else. so go in and taken action their country but they will perceive as hostile as a really bad idea. we want to set the precedent that these actions are unacceptable and we need to find a strong way to get that message to the people in x land. that doesn't have to be a public message. we don't have representation or come and we see them in vienna, new york, people who can talk to them. we need to start getting the message out back off. >> one last bit of new information and then they want to talk with everybody about how to contain the damage and what kind of reaction. so payback is now hit the controlled system but one of the physically disrupts the process. again, when the company of gas and oil in the
a meeting on foreign policy, and other items. after the meeting, ronald reagan turned to him and said, for the next 100 days of my presidency, that will be the last meeting we have on that. all we're going to focus on is the recovery and this economy. that's clearly what this president did not do. >> julian, there are people like roger altman they think no matter who is elected we'll be looking at a better economy in the next four years. you sound like you're more in that camp but i don't want to put words in your mouth. >> well, i think mitt romney is uniquely qualified to lead us through that, and i think president obama will do a better job than he's done so far, but he really hasn't had the training, i mean, and he has never been successful in getting really much accomplished, and i really believe mitt romney would be much better on that i think he's the man for this job right now, and i believe he's going to get it. >> i guess in terms of getting things accomplished for the obama campaign has pointed to things like health care, they've pointed to detroit to the turnaround and you
of political reforms or two sides of the same coin. this is the syria way. very much foreign policy as well and elected by both sides of the fence. assad did his job well. he constructed an airtight array of family travel, sectarian-based patronage system that produced loyalties and stability. and as for my good friends in damascus wrote last year, he said quote, for the regime its supporters and its allies, syria is an amateur society, a positive with evidence both real and effective and generally blown out of proportion a series of sideshows violent and seditious proclivities that can be contained only by ruthless power structure, unquote ultimately bashar and his followers cannot trust anyone else in syria. is initial strategic vision for international respected and integrated syria became consumed by syrian paradigm of political survival. he was either unwilling or powerless to stop the response to perceived threats. he returned it to me typically authored touring mode of survival your and alawite fortress to protect, the various governments of syria that co-opted over the years to prot
parents should necessarily be the pivot for how we discuss, you know, public policy or foreign policy. i thought that was true when cindy sheehan was being lionized by the mainstream media, and i feel basically the same way with mr. woods. i feel terrible for him, but we shouldn't let it manipulate everybody with guilt about it. jennifer griffin's report about how the people on the ground were denied support is a big story. we talked about it a lot on fox, "the washington post," "the new york times," abc, nbc, cbs haven't talked about it basically at all, and i think that's outrageous. megyn: jonah raises cindy she man because so many in the mainstream media wanted to talk about her story and the objections to the iraq war and she was such a presence on the campaign trail when president bush was running for re-election, and so that was the plight of a parent that got a lot of attention. the plight of mr. woods, not so much. >> well, i think that clearly he's gotten lots of attention here on fox, and, you know, just this morning there was a column in "the washington post" by david ignatiu
's foreign policy. he said there's no obama doctrine that i know of. i don't know that anybody has enunciated a world view the way that henriy kissen jer did in hs day or even james baker. there's no great love there for the president of the united states. but clearly he has endorsed him. >> yes. and also he focused on climate change which i thought was interesting. >> right. >> it comes after this huge storm and there's a big fight going on right now. and the scientists are out there saying, listen, this is climate change these sort of huge storms we haven't seen the likes of before. this is the result of climate change. and this is clearly a major who believes that his city was hard hit as a result of climate change. and so, you know, again not surprising the timing is sort of interesting to me. but it does fit in with what's been going on in new york and that he spent so much time talking about climate change. and that was what he was actually criticizing mitt romney for was romney's -- what he sees as romney's flip-flop on things like coarbon emissions. >> obviously critically important i
